Red Again

I gave in and got rid of my gross roots over the weekend. I had been holding off dyeing/bleaching my hair because I am still hoping against hope (le dramatique, like, er tatoo removal) that the Special Effects hair dye I ordered off ebay over a month ago would get here. I’m still waiting (and hoping) but seeing last Friday’s photos and how ugly my roots were made me decide not to wait any longer.

The hair dye I used is a shade of copper from HBC mixed with 12% developer creme (or oxidizing creme, I don’t really recall). It’s not an even job as I mostly applied the dye to the top part/roots and combed through the ends.

It’s not as vibrant as that, though. I really want flame red hair (aka WHY I ORDERED FROM EBAY IN THE FIRST PLACE) but HBC discontinued Flame (a bright red) so I have to settle for this.

Today’s lazy floral on floral outfit:

Cropped out my bangs because they are bothering me and my feet because I am wearing EEK! flipflops.

    hi! have you tried using HBC hair dye before when you were not yet bleaching your hair? i wanna have red hair but can’t bleach them because they’re rebonded/relaxed.. i’m curious if hbc dye alone can give me the red color that i want. (that, which is obvious ..sans the sunlight) thanks..

    Such a pretty color! I like HBC dyes so far, but then again it’s the only brand I ever tried lol. Do you remember the name of the copper shade that you used?
